Epidural hematoma status

General Details:

Name:
Epidural hematoma status
Steward:
NINDS
Definition:
Status of a collection of blood between the skull and dura. On CT, the EDH typically (though not always) has a biconvex shape, an adjacent skull fracture/scalp injury, and classically does not cross sutural margins. (In patients with skull fractures, especially those in children involving the sutures, this rule may not always apply.) The acute EDH is hyperdense, but may contain hypodense areas representing unclotted blood. As the EDH evolves, it gradually loses its hyperdensity and may appear iso/hypodense. On MRI, the acute EDH is hypo/isointense on T1 and very hypointense on T2, GRE, and SW-imaging. The inwardly displaced dura should be directly visualized on MR as a thin dark line on all pulse sequences.
